    Regarding your request, maybe we should grant domain users Local Admin rights use Restricted Group. For details, please refer to the following article.

    Hi Andy Qi

    at first let me introduce you my thanks for your very important help,but I have some notes or let me explain my issue in more details;

    what you mentioned about restricted group this make the user have administrator permission on his computer this is well for a person whom work as a  desk support and this case was one of my problems and you now solved it, but sir please note what I posted in this issue is a different case ; I want to give the permission to simple users (not desk support) to install fonts as well as brushes of photo shop just and again just this no more ; but if I use the local admin in restricted group manner the user will be able to do every thing in his computer and I do not need this, again I want them just be able to install fonts , brushes of photo shop

    so please Andy try help me in this issue and very very necessary to me finding the solution for it ,even if you can find a solution for part of the issue (font installation or brushes of photo shop installation) but I hope to find solution for two parts  

    again thank you for your time and help

    I am waiting your answer and if you can share this  issue with your friends whom have experience with this types of issues
